Hands-on environmental education for our youngest crowd!
Creepy Crawler classes are open to 2-5 year olds accompanied by an adult. Classes are held the first Monday and Tuesday of each month from 10:00 am-11:15 am. Each class involves story time, craft, hike, live animals (or artifacts), and a snack. Creepy Crawlers is held rain or shine and everyone should dress for the weather. All hikes will be stroller-accessible.
Pre-registration and Pre-payment is required. Unregistered walk-ins will only be allowed if space and supplies are available!
CBEC has instituted a new policy for registering for our Creepy Crawler events to help maximize our staff time and supply costs. We are now requiring participants to pre-pay to successfully register a spot in our classes. If a pre-paid class is missed, participants will be allotted a credit for a future class. Unregistered walk- ins will only be allowed if space and supplies are available.
Pre- Register and Pay for all 12 Creepy Crawler classes and SAVE! No refunds on this option.
